Ruthenium-catalyzed metathesis reaction using fixed-bed continuous flow reactor

Olefin metathesis is an excellent method for the preparation of new rings and valuable intermediates in organic synthesis and polymer chemistry. The development of metathesis catalysts that combine high activity with a tolerance towards different functional groups has been important for the widespread utilization of this application. Out of all the various catalysts that have been reported, the ruthenium type catalysts have the widest application due to their easy handling and substrate variability.
